How can I get rid of an eye infection?

Depends. Most actual eye infections are viral and while frequently very unpleasant are almost always self limited - keep it clean but antibiotics do not work. In adults, if the infection is bacterial then antibiotics can get rid of it. Less easy are infections caused by fungus and amoebas .These have to be seen by a corneal specialist as they can be very visually threatening. Read more...

I used polysporin eye drops and my eyes seem to hurt and get redder, do I even have an eye infection? My symptoms today were some white discharge

Could be allergic. You could have an allergy to either the antibiotic polysporin or the preservative. I would suggest stopping the medicine, using a drop of artificial tear (Systane Balance, HypoTears, Tears Naturale or generic) 4 times a day for 3 days and if no better see an eye care specialist.

I have an eye infection I ususally get when I am under a lot of stress. What is the over counter treatment you recommend?

Needs a look by MD. Stress may lower your resistance to infection but will not cause infection all by itself. If your eye gets red frequently, let an ophthalmologist look at it once to see if there is no other problem. He/she might recommend eyedrops to use to deal with the redness which probably is not an infection. Read more...
